Graph showing decreasing coal use, increasing natural gas, solar, and wind.

Electric power generation from different fuel sources and technologies from 1990 to 2017. Since 2010, the declining market share from coal has been filled largely by natural gas and, to a lesser extent, renewables such as solar and wind power.

This is Figure 4.3 in "Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II." Public domain. Figure was adapted from "Electricity generation from selected fuels" figure in the 2018 Annual Energy Outlook (EIA 2018).
